Ocean City, MD – Under a new declaration passed on Friday everyone over the age of five must now wear face coverings on the Ocean City Boardwalk between the hours of 8 a.m. to 2 a.m.

The order passed in a council meeting goes into effect at 5 p.m. on Friday. Mayor Rick Meehan passed the declaration saying he believes he needed to be even more specific with regard to the Boardwalk than Governor Larry Hogan’s executive order, which also goes into effect on Friday.

In a statement Mayor Meehan says, “Taking these actions seriously and practicing personal responsibility will help us move Ocean City and the rest of the state forward.”
